Coming back to Branson, I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures from the car. I would have taken more, but my camera's card was full, and while taking pictures while driving is ill-advisable, deleting them is even more hazardous.
Highway 60Good deal on gas
$2.82 was the cheapest I'd seen gas, so I pulled over and filled up with super unleaded. For some strange reason, it was cheaper than regular unleaded. Later, when I had left the beaten track and headed south to avoid the barricade resulting from a truck fire, I saw gas for an amazing $2.71.
Random facts I learned from taking the backroads:
- Yes, gentle reader, there is a Newtonia, MO, and a Newton county.
- Granby is the oldest mining town in the southwest.
- Travel without map is fun if you have time to follow your nose.
